The 'Yield stress myth?' paper - 21 years on

Appl. Rheol. 17:4 (2007) 43110 (5 pages)

Abstract: Consideration is given to the reaction to Barnes and Walters' 4-page The yield stress myth? paper published 21 years ago. It has been cited approximately 180 times since then, as either a standard reference for 'yield stress' papers, or to disagree with its sentiment that yield stresses do not actually exist, but are a useful approximation. The references that cite the paper are categorized and commented on. © 2007 Applied Rheology.
